“If you make wines in a region that can grow the famous grapes of Bordeaux then it is nearly impossible not to be tempted to see how they blend together and what they can produce. The Valentina showcases a classic blend of Bordeaux grapes, each variety adding a layer of complexity to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Cabernet Sauvignon (56%) gives it structure, Merlot (23%) a vibrant heart, and Malbec (21%) a touch of attitude... just like my daughter Charli Valentina."

TASTING NOTES
 
Baked cherry notes and aromas of pumpkin pie spice meet a medium body with a smooth and rich texture.
 
Production notes

Hand harvested. Fermented in 1 ton bins with 3 punch-downs per day.  Bladder pressed after an average 7 days of skin contact. Malolactic fermentation in barrel. 20 months of barrel aging in barrels of French and American origin; 30% new and 2nd year barrels, 70% neautral barrels. Bottled in June 2019.

Other notes

We can't stop thinking about Chef Gary Kucy's, of Rupert's in McCall, creation with Valentina: wine-braised Buffalo short ribs... or go decant with a German Black Forest cake.

When to drink: During the first few years, decant this wine for an hour and then enjoy. This gorgeous blend will continue to evolve beautifully over the next 5-25 years.
